I love it. I love doing what I’m doing. I love taking care of people assisting all the people. I had an experience when my mother-in-law was sick and I took care of her until she died. And then I realized I would do my best to help people, it’s like ministerial work, it’s like we’re working for god. When you take care of people you take care of me. I just love doing it.

We are taking care of people who are vulnerable who depend on others to do what we’re going to do that is why as caregivers we have to be very, very careful of where we go and take precautions and you have to make sure that everything is okay with you so you don’t spread it. They don’t go out, there’s no way they can contract it if no one brings it to them. So, you have to make sure that you’re fine before you go to work. Me, I don’t even allow visitors in my house except for my immediate family who we are living together and I don’t go to visit anyone. And even if you’re very close to me I have to let you know what precautions that you have to take, you have to wear your mask, you have to make sure there is no contact and that social distancing is important and you don’t stay too close to me. We all have to make sure that we do all we have to do to all live a healthy life and we have to make sure that those we’re taking care of don’t have any problem because the risk is high for them. I happen to be one of the very first staff who got their vaccine because I know it will work and is very important. I make sure that our clients are safe and so that I too am safe.
